Tent Top replacement

Post by Yurugaboy » Fri Jun 26, 2020 12:51 pm

Hi,
We have a great 7x4 trailer with a side setup tent on it. It’s large and given us a lot of pleasure.
We are after tent only recommendations.
From the rear it unpacks to the right. And is about 3-4 m out and then awning is at rear . Zippers are going - pole fasteners are stripping. Need some ideas of manufacturers or off the shelf for the tops only.
The easier to setup the better and Aussie canvas.
We want to keep the trailer and the Drifta kitchen etc.
Any ideas or recommendations received gratefully. We are in Queanbeyan.
Thanks

The best I know of in Australia is Southern Cross Canvas (https://www.southerncrosscanvas.com.au/), although they are not cheap. Then again, neither are Drifta. Southern Cross are in Vic but you should be able to arrange something via email. Drop them a line and see what they say.
